How’d you like to win pretty much the sweetest internship of all time?
An internship so fun that it will make a weekend in Ibiza look like an episode of Blue’s Clues.
All you have to do is answer one question. Answer it well, and you’ll earn a swivel chair of your very own right here at one of the biggest ad agencies in the world.
Answer it poorly, and you’ll have a miserable summer sleeping till noon and relaxing on the beach with your oldest friends.
Are you ready for the question?
Here it is…”What is the Matrix?” Just kidding, that’s not the question, although if you know the answer to that one you should probably keep it to yourself, lest the Matrix come after you.
The real question is…”What is your most profound digital experience?”
You can answer however you like. Maybe you broke up with your boyfriend over G-Chat. Maybe you learned Mandarin from a YouTube video. Maybe Kanye re-tweeted you. Whatever it is, post your answer in the comment section of this blog post, and if we like what we see you can come on down for a perfunctory interview. Do not censor yourself. This is advertising, not politics.
But wait — there’s more! To complete the application, you have to email us the following materials:
1) The best Tweet you’ve ever seen
2) The best Tweet you’ve ever written
3) The best Facebook post you’ve ever seen
4) The best Facebook post you’ve ever written
5) The best YouTube video you’ve ever seen
6) The best YouTube video you’ve ever made
7) The best Blog post you’ve ever seen
8) The best Blog post you’ve ever written.
9) The best video game you’ve ever played.
Again, send us whatever you want. If your favorite YouTube video is a bunch of bunnies screaming at the top of their lungs, please, go ahead and make our day. Answer as many as you can. Include a one-sentence rationale for each of your choices. Also, please send us your resumes so we can skim them.* Oh, also, cover letters are strictly prohibited.

Why You Should Want This Job:
— learn everything there is to know about social media marketing

— create content. You will tweet. You will post. You will spend all day on Facebook, just like you did in college.
— feed us grapes and fan us with giant leaves. JK.
— get paid. Not a lot, but that’s a whole lot better than nothing.
Only one of you shall be chosen. We will stop accepting applications on April 23rd. Submit answers and resumes to: email@example.com
* Rest assured we will hire you based on your answers, not your resume.
